Wall Graphic Info:
Wall graphics are adhesive backed vinyl that has been printed and cut to a shape or design. Wall graphics can be cut to simple shapes (squares, rectangles, and circles) or complex designs.
Vinyl for wall graphics can be laminated with gloss, satin, matte, or dry erase. Lamination not only changes the sheen, but it extends the life of the wall graphics by protecting against rubbing, scratching, scuffing, fading.
Wall Graphic Types:
Wall graphics are a bit more complicated than other graphics because certain vinyls will or won't stick to certain wall types. You have to be careful with walls that are painted or plain drywall because vinyls with stronger adhesives could damage the wall when being removed; on the other side of that, using a vinyl with weaker adhesive could result in the graphics not sticking.
We suggest getting a vinyl sample of the material you're interested in before ordering, to test it on your wall and make sure it will work. Or you can give us details about what type of wall you have (ie: dry wall, painted, unfinished, brick, etc.) and we will suggest a vinyl for you.
Wall Graphic Uses:
Wall graphics are often used for promotions/sales, branding, and/or as decoration.
Though wall graphics can be used for anything you want.
Materials for Wall Graphics:
We touched on the options for wall graphics above. Here's a more detailed break down of the materials that can be used:
Vehicle Grade: 3M SV480mC (premium plus), 3M IJ180mC-10 (premium). These are the high-end, vehicle grade materials.
Premium: Orajet 3169 (removable), 3M IJ40 (removable), 3M IJ35 (permanent), Low Tack (removable plus), High Tack (permanent plus). These are materials for mid to short term applications.
Intermediate: Orajet 3164. This is an affordable option for mid to short term stickers, and/or giveaway/handout stickers.
Optical Clear: 3M IJ8150. This is a high-end clear option, that when applied to glass or other clear surfaces doesn't show the clear parts of the vinyl like other options will.
Standard Clear: Arlon 4500. This is the standard mid to short term clear material.
Translucent: Arlon 6500. This is a partially clear, milky white vinyl that allows light to pass through while still being white enough to allow ink colors to show/pop.
Reflective: 3M IJ5100. This is a vinyl that will shimmer and shine when exposed to light, usually used for street/construction stickers/signs, but also makes for a very unique sticker.
We also have a large selection of colored cut vinyl (ranging from standard colors like blue and red, to specialty colors like gold leaf and chrome) that can all be printed on, or cut out just using the one color.
